ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 23, 2021)

Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: Ariana Grande is positioned at the top once again. Let’s add ’em up:

ENJOY THE VIEW: Top 40 radio has a point of view on Ariana Grande’s “POV”, which leads the adds report with 81 stations on impact. This will soon be the third top 40 hit from the album Positions: both the title track and “34+35” reached #1 at the format.

Five adds behind Grande, Justin Bieber opened in second place with the Daniel Caesar and Givēon-assisted hit “Peaches”. At 76 stations this week, it comes in well ahead of another recent Bieber release, “Hold On”, scoring 24 adds and a fourth place finish. Meanwhile, featured artist Givēon is also breaking out with his own tune “Heartbreak Anniversary”, which takes fifth place with 18 new commitments from the panel.

Format newcomer Duncan Laurence also had a great day with “Arcade”, a hit which won the Eurovision Song Contest two years ago. Thanks in part to recent activity on TikTok, it’s having a successful second life: it secured up 50 adds on impact, good for third place.

Charting singles from Bebe Rexha, Cardi B and Masked Wolf returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ARIANA GRANDE, “POV” (Republic)
2. JUSTIN BIEBER featuring DANIEL CAESAR & GIVEON, “Peaches” (Def Jam)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 21, 2021)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. For all the songs that continue to drive onto the pop radio highway, here’s a look at what’s hitting the gas at the format this week:

DRIVERS WANTED: Holding steady for a fourth week, Olivia Rodrigo claims the top spot on the pop chart and remains above 19,000 spins with “Driver’s License”. However, the song is in need of some fuel: it’s down more than 500 spins. Additionally, the hit advances from 2-1 on the Hot AC chart, marking her first chart-topper at that format as well.

Justin Bieber has the highest of two new entries in the top 40 with “Hold On”, climbing from 45-34. Accordingly, it’s also his 34th top 40 single to date. Also new to the top 40: “Sacrifice”, the 18th chart entry for Bebe Rexha, which leaps from 44-35.

There’s also some larger debut activity in the top 50 this week: leading things off, “Friday” comes in at #45 for producers Riton and Nightcrawlers. Their song features a sample of a viral video created by internet personalities Mufasa and Hypeman. “Friday” is already a solid hit overseas, reaching the top ten in some parts of Europe. Chart regular Drake starts at #47 with one of three songs he released earlier this month, “What’s Next”. It just debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Lastly, at #49, is the TikTok-fueled “In The End”, a partial remake of Linkin Park‘s 2002 hit from producer Tommee Profitt and singer Fleurie. Profitt has a small history of top 40 entries as a songwriter and producer for NF, including his chart-topping “Let You Down” from three years ago.

“DOOR” GOES FOR MORE: “Leave The Door Open” checks into the hit hotel for another week, as Silk Sonic (featuring Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) leads the Top 40 adds report with 35 new stations in its second week. That puts the track just ahead of two singles tied for second place, coming in with 31 adds: “Astronaut In The Ocean” by Masked Wolf and “Beautiful Mistakes” by Maroon 5 featuring Megan Thee Stallion. All three songs are well into the top 30 at the format.

Breaking out in the top ten, Tones And I came in fifth place with 21 stations on impact for “Fly Away”, while Justin Bieber held onto ninth place with “Hold On”, securing 17 more adds this week.

Charting singles from AJR, Daya and JESSIA returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 14, 2021)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. As we wait and see who will be taking home some GRAMMY statues tonight, here’s a look at what’s popping at the format this week:

LICENSE RENEWAL: For the third week in a row, Olivia Rodrigo remains at the top spot on the pop radio chart with “Driver’s License”. While still in positive territory, the big hit was up a mere 45 spins vs. last week. That being said, it’s more than 2,600 spins ahead of the song at #2, so it’ll still be hanging around at the top for a fourth week next Sunday.

The new duo of Silk Sonic scores this week’s top entry in the top 40 with “Leave The Door Open”, making a giant move from 43-25 on the list. Their first charting title also marks the 22nd and first entries in the region individually for Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, respectively. Climbing from 41-38, G-Eazy and Chris Brown provide the top 40 with a new hit called, well, “Provide”. This is the 11th time in the top 40 for G-Eazy and the 36th for Brown. Jessia is also rising on the pop list with “I’m Not Pretty”. The track takes a nice jump from 44-39 this week, marking her first trip into the region.

In the top 50, Bebe Rexha leads a set of four debuts at #44 with “Sacrifice”, followed by Justin Bieber and “Hold On” at #45. His forthcoming album Justice is due on Friday. The recent viral hit “Calling My Phone” starts at #47 for Lil Tjay and 6LACK, which is flying through the top 20 on the Rhythmic radio chart and approaching the region on the Urban survey. Lastly, “Watchu Tryna Do?” puts chart newcomer GiGi Vega in the #50 spot this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 25, 2020)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. We hope you’re in the mood for some songs and stats. Let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

HEART OF GOLDN: Format newcomers 24KGoldn and Iann Dior leap from 3-1 on the Top 40 chart with “Mood”. The song is doing well across several other U.S. formats: it climbs to #2 on this week’s Rhythmic chart and is moving through the top 15 and top 25 on the Alternative and Hot AC radio charts, respectively.

Ariana Grande has the week’s top new entry with “Positions”, a song that blasts into the #28 spot after only two days of airplay. It marks the singer’s 23rd top 40 single at this format. It’s also the title cut from her upcoming album, which is out on Friday. Up from 45-34 on the survey, Bebe Rexha and Doja Cat are moving quickly with “Baby, I’m Jealous”. The entry gives the two women their 17th and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Harry Styles is next in line, as he rises from 47-39 with his sixth solo top 40 hit and third from his Fine Line album, “Golden”. Lastly, up a single notch to #40, Madison Beer achieves her third top 40 single with “Baby”.

In the top 50, G-Eazy and Blackbear come in at #42 with “Hate The Way”, their first charting collaboration. Joji checks in at #47 with the song he hopes will become his second top 40 single at the format, “Your Man”. Singer and songwriter Julia Michaels also makes it onto the list this week with “Lie Like This”, which starts at #48, while Bea Miller sneaks in at #49 with “Feel Something”.

For those of you craving some Ocean Spray and a little Fleetwood Mac, the legendary group’s 1977 chart-topper turned 2020 viral hit “Dreams” would’ve been at #52 this week if it was converted back to current status. If any changes are made, we’ll let you know.
